I don't agree, Raitt is a great artist, plays the blues/folk/rock etc with a lot of feeling. She puts on a great concert and surrounds herself with great musicians and her band is tight, and while she was no Duane or Lowell George, she is a great slide guitar players (and blows away Bobby in that regard). I've always loved her music, and while I agree that for most of their careers the boys far outshone her, by 1993 they were only a shell of the band that I knew and loved, and seeing them was more nostalgic for me than anything else.

The dead were a shell of their previous selves in '93? '93 was perhaps one of the most consistent of the closing years. Most shows had polish and shine, and as the year wore on, the mix got more and more balanced. '92 and 94-5 were disjointed by compare.
